Budget PC advice needed

Corfate

Author Level
Hi folks,

I'm back ;) (Kinda)

I have a friend that is after a budget PC, to play Football manager etc on (I know it's not the most demanding game)

He wants a quad core CPU, but other than that, he's pretty easy (Wheyyy), around £400.

I'm well out of the PC speccing environment, so any help is greatly appreciated :)

Taaaaa!

Seems pretty unbeatable price/performance, should just about handle football manager but anything less and you might experience some issues.
Lol, keep trolling Keynes.
